Good guys, enter right. Bad guys, enter left.

George Lucas is famed for (or should that be infamous for?) the amount of tricks and tinkering he's done with his Star Wars movies over the decades. While that tinkering has often involved going back and changing things about certain films - such as replacing Sebastian Shaw with Hayden Christensen for Anakin's Force Ghost at the end of Return of the Jedi - one particular trick that Lucas used, is on fully display in Episode II: Attack of the Clones.

Granted, a good number of Star Wars fans will lambast Attack of the Clones as the absolute worst movie in the franchise's history, but if you do happen to go back and watch Episode II any time soon, be sure to keep an eye out when the 'good' and 'bad' armies enter your screen to do battle.

In Attack of the Clones, whenever the Jedi-tied Republic Clone Troopers enter the fray to fight the good fight, they come in from the right. For their nefarious Sith-driven Separatist Battle Droids, they always enter the action from the left of your screen. In addition to this, battles between these two armies usually frame the sun behind the Clone Troopers, meaning the the 'bad' Separatists have an ominous, gloomier sky surrounding them.
